Hi everyone,

I'm Stuart - with my brand new internet connection. I'm a former librarian of the Buddhist Society in London, and did I mention that I've got an internet connection once again ;)

Welcome stuart.

It’s only meditation when there are two minds:
Knowing-noting mind and observing mind.
If there is only one mind, ‘I’ is always there.
The object is not the dhamma,
The dhamma is the mind
That is being aware.

- Shwe Oo Min Sayadaw

Hi Stuart
Welcome to Dhamma Wheel!

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Hi stuart. Nice to meet you.
That's made wholly possible by the fact that you have internet connection, you know.
And, I might add, a discerningly good choice of on-line sangha websites.

I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! :D
